A new South African builder debuts its new day charter cat
Scape Yachts was founded in 2002 by Allan Knight, an avid sailor who in his teens competed in numerous windsurfing and sailing events both locally and internationally. After school, Allan apprenticed at many of the top boat building manufacturers in Cape Town, South Africa. He built himself an Elf 26’ “maxi-micro” multihull a while back and chartered it on the Vaal Dam (South Africa’s largest body of inland water). The experience gained from this venture was the seed to designing a larger vessel that offered all the requirements of a day charter vessel while also being fast and fun to sail.
